MAY!

Goodness. This year is flying by!

I’ll skip my ramblings because every time a new month comes and go it just blows my mind, so let’s get straight to the fun stuff of a new month and that is Foodie Pen Pals! I can’t believe I’ve been participating in this for almost two years, but it is something that I really enjoy doing! So if you haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend heading over to Lindsay’s site and getting the details on it.

I was paired up with Katie this month and from her first e-mail I was pretty excited, because she just seemed so sweet and really excited about the program like I am.

Sometimes I get specific with my foodie pen pals on my likes and dislikes, but in talking with her, I pretty much told her to get me whatever she wanted because she seemed to have access to some pretty fun stuff.

Here is what she sent me.

Quaker Popped Chips – Sour Cream and Onion, Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips, two types of salsa’s and I believe her own Snack Mix combination.

This chip/dip loving girl was happy. But it didn’t end there. She sent me something else that got me even more excited.

Four different types of beers!

We both expressed our love for a good adult beverage and I was pleasantly surprised to see the assortment of beers she sent me.

Ironically the Timber Beast was my favorite and I say ironically because Matt and I joked that the guy on the label resembled him.

Yes I am dating a bearded lumberjack of a man – and he makes a dang good beer!

There was also one more special treat that I had to quickly get photographed separately, because upon arrival of the package a certain someone was requesting to eat one of the contents immediately.

Katie also sent two chocolate cakes and Matt pretty much claimed those as his the moment he saw them.

We also had a little puppy guest who was trying to get her paws on them as well.

Matt didn’t share.

The first thing I dove into however was the snack mix. I love it because it has a sweet and spicy aspect to it having dried cranberries (or maybe cherries?), walnuts and wasabi peas. An interesting mix, but it works.

I was nicer than Matt however and shared.

Katie sent me over a picture of her goodies once they arrived. She also told me that the home made dog treats I sent her got her and her husbands parents dogs approval! Yay!

Katie had told me that she liked a wide variety of items and also loved sauces and items that could be added to meals. I sent her a local salsa, curry sauce, dried julienne tomatoes, Trader Joes Caramel Popcorn, a local beer and since it was Easter I felt it was necessary to include a chocolate bunny!

Overall a great Foodie Pen Pal month, thanks Katie!
